Forgiveness Book Review

Disclosure: I received a copy for review from Book Sneeze. However, all opinions are my own.

Whether giving or receiving, forgiveness is the key toward true healing and blessing. This is so true. When my youngest daughter passed away a few months ago, I was devastated but also angry. I couldn't let go and forgive those who had hurt my daughter or me. The bitterness and anger I held inside tore me apart. I just couldn't let go and forgive. When I received my copy of Forgiveness Overcoming the Impossible
by Matthew West I was ready to open up my heart and forgive.

It took a lot of courage for Matthew West to go on a journey and talk  to people about healing through forgiveness. Reading their stories helped me find hope and forgiveness. I also learned not to hold on but to let go.

If you are in a place where you can't forgive or even need forgiveness, pick up a copy of Forgiveness.

Book Description

Whether giving or receiving, forgiveness is the key toward true healing and blessing.
God says there are no limits to forgiveness toward others or ourselves. And when Matthew West set out on a journey asking people to share their true life stories, Renée shared about how she chose to forgive the drunk driver who hit and killed her daughter.
This remarkable story and others like it bring peace and healing to the one needing and the ones giving forgiveness. Fifty powerful stories share forgiveness through divorce, betrayal, addiction, abandonment, death, and more. Each story ties into the promises of God’s faithfulness and healing, and ends with the story of God’s ultimate forgiveness through the message of salvation.

Hopelifter- Book Review

Disclosure: I'm a member of Book Sneeze and received a review copy to facilitate this review. However, all opinions are my own.

When my daughter passed away a few months ago, I lost any shred of hope I had. I felt lost and completely alone, then I received this wonderful book in the mail. My life changed after reading Kathe Wunnenberg's Hopelifter.

If you've  ever lost hope in a dire situation or know someone who has, this book is a hope lifter. Reading the book brought me from the pit of Hell into the arms of hope. I have to give Hopelifter 5 stars.

Book Description

“I wish there were something I could do to ease the pain.”
How often do women see a friend in distress or crisis, but feel helpless to really make a difference? Hopelifter: Creative Ways to Spread Hope When Life Hurts takes the mystery out of how to be the hands and feet of Jesus to anyone in need of hope, comfort and care.

The perfect book for women who want to spread hope in their friendships, workplace, neighborhoods, and homes, and ideal for those in caring roles in churches and ministries.
